Hungry and out of work, the boys
are delighted to answer a newpaper ad seeking three sailors for an
adventurous cruise. But Professor A.K. Rimple and his lovely daughter
have a different kind of journey in mind as they eagerly welcome their
new sailors aboard. Little do the boys know, however, that they are
on a space ship who's mission is bound for the planet Sunev (that's
Venus spelled backwards). Once in orbit, the boys have little choice
but to stay onboard the craft (although Larry does dangle by his toes
after attempting an escape that fails). Shortly thereafter, the vessel
lands on Sunev with a frightening thud. The planet, it turns out,
is populated by curvaceous Amazon women and is therefore judged by
the Stooges to be eminently inhabitable. After making friendly with
the first three Amazon women, the boys find themselves tied to posts
and added to the dinner menu. The capture is short-lived, however,
as the canniballistic women who want to devour them are frightened
off by a giant space lizard who sees "three-course meal"
in his future as well! The Stooges barely escape and make a run to
the spaceship. As they reach the door to the spaceship, it bursts
open, knocking the Professor and his daughter out cold. But there
is no cause for alarm. Moe believes he can operate the spaceship.
He actually does just fine until Joe breaks off a control lever sending
the ship barreling back down to earth. The scene dissoves to the Liar's
Club's 27th Annual Convention where an emcee awards the Stooges first
prize for being the biggest liars in the world!
Ship Sappy, Outer Space Jitters and Flying Saucer Daffy were all
heavily influenced by the "Sci-Fi" explosion sweeping
television in the late 50's.
Did you know that screenwriter
Jack White originally planned for the Stooges to go into their Viva!
Viva! routine after receiving their Liar's Club award?
